A vibrant bronze and multi-metal figure of Daruma with gold detailing. The Founder of Zen, fully awake after his long sleep, stands erect upon a rocky plinth, his robes swirling around him. His wide-open gilt and shakudo eyes, realistically sculpt body and facial features work well with the stylized movements of his garments, lending an air of mystery to this imposing figure. Takamura Koun plaque on rear. Height, 11.2". Tomobako. Taisho Period.
